Where is the hard evidence that Asian Americans were targeted? What has been the result of the campaign fundraising investigations? How do Asian Americans fare politically compared to Jewish groups and others? Will African Americans run into these same problems? How does the ethnic and racial composition of newsrooms affect the reporting?

Didn't the moneyed political wannabes Asian-Americans (as opposed to various more traditional Asian-American civil rights/affirmative action groups) allow themselves to be co-opted by offshore Asian companies and governments and are thereby partly responsible for their own unjust predicament?

I have been a registered Republican Party member in the State of Washington for a long time. Many Asian-Americans support the Republican Party's theme. During the last political campaign, I stop my support of the Republican Party because of its immigrant-bashing activities. Many other Asian-American were also turned off by the Republican Party's immigrant bashing activities. Is the Republican Party aware of this loss of traditional support?
